Maybe Microsoft should be using Surfaces instead of wasting their time with this pointless advertising campaign, then.


Or maybe people should be using Surfaces instead of iPads in their hundreds of thousands of jobs across hundreds of fields. Oh, wait, they can't, because the iPad exists and the Surface doesn't.

 They have a new product being released on October 26th, so they're building buzz around it.

I think they'd be better served building it instead. lol.gif Or at least giving developers a reason to build for it.

If Microsoft wants "buzz," they need to crap something to draw the flies. 

 

In preparation of the release of "Surface" the store employees are being trained to look busy while paid shills come and go with empty boxes with "Surface" painted on the sides.

Mmm! *miming fast right hook* That's a good one. I want to see that used more often.

So you've used one and speak from experience?

This has nothing to do with Chicago.

I'm curious to know how exactly they cleaned up that subway station. It's still a pit, but the only difference is when you walk out of it you're immediately walking toward a giant apple store with a fountain in front of it. Maybe it was a 4 million dollar fountain. If so, i need to start researching the lucrative fountain business!
